CLARENDON – Two Brinks employees escaped serious injury this morning when their armored truck ran off the roadway and overturned in the Town of Clarendon.

The incident occurred at approximately 11 a.m. on Holley-Byron Road (Route 237) between Hinds Road and Church Street.

Gary E. Machlowski, 64, of Buffalo was operating the truck headed north on Rt. 237 when he failed to negotiate a curve near Hanson Stone Corporation. The truck ran off the west side of the roadway and overturned, coming to rest on its roof.

A passenger in the truck’s rear compartment is identified as James A. Reinertsen, 32, of Buffalo. Both Reinertsen and Machlowski were treated at the scene by Clarendon EMS and Monroe Ambulance personnel. Neither individual was transported to the hospital.

Supervisory personnel from Brinks responded to the scene as well as a second armored truck. That section of Rt. 237 remained closed to traffic until about 1:45 p.m.

The incident was investigated by Deputy M.C. Mele, assisted by Deputy T.N. Tooley.
